Mark, also known as “McSteamy,” was a plastic surgeon. He had a complicated relationship with Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) because he slept with his wife, Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh). Eventually, they all moved on, and Mark became friends with other surgeons after moving to Seattle.

He later fell in love with Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) sister, Lexie (Chyler Leigh). Sadly, their love story didn’t have a happy ending. They were in a plane crash at the end of season 8. Lexie died first, and it seemed like Mark was going to survive with injuries. However, he later went into a coma and was taken off life support.

By that time, he had already fathered a child with Callie Tores (Sara Ramirez). She goes on to raise her with Arizona (Jessica Capshaw).

Station 19 had a dramatic crossover with Grey’s Anatomy. It all started with firefighters having to respond to a neighborhood after there was an explosion. A man accidentally hit a gas line.

Victoria Hugues (Barrett Doss) was hit by an electric wire. Dean Miller (Okieriete Onaodowan) woke her up with CPR, but then she was given morphine and was high. She made sure to tell Dean that she loved him like a brother. She then pushed Travis Montgomery (Jay Hayden) to tell Emmett Dixon (Lachlan Buchanan) he loves him.

“If you love someone, you just tell them,” Victoria says. “You tell them. You don’t–you don’t kick them out and then save their life and then move away. You tell them. Tell them. Tell them.” Travis then told Emmett he loves him.

This is similar to Mark’s scene in the hospital in “Remember the Time.” He is giving advice to Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams). “Promise me something, if you love someone you tell them even if you’re scared it’s not the right thing, even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems, even if you’re scared it’ll burn your life to the ground, you say it,” he said. “And you say it loud, and you go from there.”

It looks like characters in the Grey’s Anatomy universe are still struggling to voice their feelings. So they’re learning the same lessons that had to be taught in past seasons. Sadly, Victoria’s scene also came before a devastating death. But it was Dean who died at the end of the episode.
